Every Tuesday, Mike Sylvester brings you REVOLUTIONARY, a look at the wide world of Wii possibilities. Going by the company's success of late, neophytes might assume that Nintendo was always looked at as the redemptive innovator of the games industry. But some time around the midpoint of the Supe...

Using GlovePIE, along with some other programs called BlueSoleil and PPJoy, the young lad above was able to control his high-powered (and, likely, high-dollar) telescope with a Wiimote. We guess we can just chalk this up to another thing the Wiimote can do. Heck, we even present the amazing things...

Every Tuesday, Mike Sylvester brings you REVOLUTIONARY, a look at the wide world of Wii possibilities. I was going to jump right into writing another script with you this week, but as development progressed, I remembered how much time I wasted on my first scripts because I didn't have a handle on...

Utilizing some Wiimotes and a GlovePIE script, some Wii fans known as "ii" from Stockholm, Sweden managed to conduct a two-man concert recently. In the embedded video, their song "aa" is performed and we find ourselves to be in a mild state of awe. We just love what people can do with their Wiimot...

Reader Tiger, who we all know loves working with GlovePIE (as evidenced by his work with Rez, Panzer Dragoon and House of the Dead 3), has made another script, implementing Wiimote controls into the PC port of Biohazard 4 (Resident Evil 4). Tiger's even gone ahead and matched the button mapping we ...

Blogger Chris Heald of antiarc.net has a Wii remote and likes to go fishing in WoW. So when he found out (I didn't know this) that the Wii remote is really just a bluetooth device, he figured he could work out some way to combine the two. First, he got Chrono Trigger (omg great game) working, and ...

Reader Tiger is at it again, coming up with some crazy-awesome GlovePIE scripts that allow one to incorporate the Wiimote into other games. Last time he used the Wiimote in House of the Dead 3 and this time Tiger is tackling another Sega game: the PC port of Panzer Dragoon. Again, Tiger delivers, a...

Reader Tiger wrote in to inform us of a pretty awesome use of the GlovePIE script he came up with, wherein this homebrewer homebrewster took the code, beat it down into a mound of wet ... stuff, then took the remains and sculpted them into something that much more wonderful. Using a PC, along with ...

What's a Wii fanboy to do without a Wii to call his own? Hack one up himself, of course. Bigjohn8411 found himself in just such a predicament, so he scraped together a "Wii OS" launcher program for his PC just to feel like one of the cool kids. Other than accepting Wiimote input over Bluetooth via...

If air drumming or imaginary light sabers aren't your thing, then perhaps the familiar territory of Google Earth will be enough to get you to pull your Wiimote away from Zelda long enough to run a few scripts on your PC. There's nothing too complicated going on here, with just the requisite GlovePI...

More Wiimote hackery takes today's honor as the second-most-watched YouTube game video. (The Halo 3 commercial is still scoring big, taking the top spot.) The video, created by the same people who demonstrated GlovePIE, shows the Wiimote controlling Half-Life 2. The game interprets the movements of ...

Today's most-watched YouTube game video shows a Wiimote controlling a Windows PC mouse pointer. (Go here if you're looking for that other video.) The Bluetooth connection uses the freely available GlovePIE to make sense of the movements; download the software to try it out at home. We're excited abo...
